Definition lists consist of two parts: a term and a description. To mark up a definition list, you need three HTML elements; a container, a definition term, and a definition description. For example:

  1. <dl>
  2. <dt>Frog</dt>
  3. <dd>Wet green thing</dd>
  4. <dt>Rabbit</dt>
  5. <dd>Warm fluffy thing</dd>
  6. </dl>
DL

DT

DD
